Macleay Island camp ground trial supported


Redland City Council will consider establishing a free or low-cost basic camping ground on the Macleay Island foreshore.

Councillors today supported a Notice of Motion by Division 5 (Redland Bay and Southern Moreton Bay Islands) Councillor Mark Edwards calling for Council to consider options for a 12-month trial of a camping ground at Coast Road Foreshore adjacent to Sandpiper Beach.

“The goal is to boost tourist numbers to the Southern Moreton Bay Islands by providing a small-scale, free or low-cost camping experience for kayakers, cyclists and boaters,” Cr Edwards said.

“It is anticipated that the camp ground would be a maximum two-night (three-day) stay on the foreshore area with only tent sites available and no power, similar to the camp grounds at Lions Boulevard Park, Russell Island.

“Visitors to the island could kayak over and stay at the camp grounds, with portaloos on site. It is not intended that the camp grounds would be for caravans or motor homes.

“The intention would be for a local community group to run the camping ground on behalf of Council.

“This sandy beach at Coast Road Foreshore on Macleay Island is predominantly Council-owned property and has treed and grassed areas, walking tracks, and picnic settings – an ideal site for a low-key camping area.”

Cr Edwards said he had asked Council to consider how a camping ground might be approved, taking into account planning and local laws, risks and budget considerations.

“I have asked that officers research and prepare an options report for further consideration by 15 December 2021 for the proposed camping ground trial at 79-87 Coast Road, Macleay Island,” he said.

“I have received written support from the Macleay Island Progress Association, local group Running Wild and the Wooden Boat Association of Queensland for this small-scale camping ground, while the Tingira Boat Club has offered to provide portable toilets to Council free-of-charge during the trial.

“Running Wild has offered to help run the camp ground during the trial and Tingira Boat Club has also offered to help manage the trial. The fact a licensed club that offers meals and function space is on board will assist in supporting the trial.”

Historic Willards Farm looks to the future within Birkdale Community Precinct


Maintenance work and an updated Conservation Management Plan (Heritage) are underway for the historic heritage-protected Willards Farm as its future place within Birkdale Community Precinct begins to take shape.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said a program of works was being prepared around future restoration priorities for the site, which is one of the oldest surviving farms and residences on Redlands Coast, believed to date back to the 1870s.

“Works were completed recently to help stabilise the structural integrity of the farmhouse’s main supports,” Cr Williams said.

Historic heritage-protected Willards Farm at Birkdale Community Precinct.

“This is such a well-loved and important property in terms of our city’s European history and it will no doubt become a jewel in the crown of Birkdale Community Precinct as we go forward.

“On-site investigations have been completed as part of developing the updated conservation management plan for Willards Farm.

“There also will be maintenance work carried out on some of the farm’s significant trees in coming months.”

Cr Williams said that as well as Willards Farm, Birkdale Community Precinct’s protected heritage areas included the former World War II radio receiving station built in 1943 by the US Army Signals Corp and its associated rhombic array of radio antennas.

“The heritage values of this precinct are incredibly important, genuinely fascinating and will be protected,” Cr Williams said.

Division 10 Councillor Paul Bishop said Willards Farm, aka The Pines, held a special place in both history and the heart of the Birkdale community.

“There are so many heritage values tied up in this place, there are gateways to knowledge and ongoing stories of significance yet to be explored here,” Cr Bishop said.

The original homestead and surrounding buildings, such as the milking shed and creamery, help to anchor the entire Birkdale Community Precinct within its early European and pioneer context.

“The place is of so much value to future generations it cannot be underestimated.

“The structures were built by the Willards using simple bush carpentry techniques made from local timbers felled on site, including white beech, swamp beech, cedar and pine.

“The exact date the homestead was constructed is uncertain but it was likely around 1876 when owners James and Margaret Willard took out a mortgage on the land they had owned and farmed since 1865.”

Cr Williams said Council bought the property at 302 Old Cleveland Road East, Birkdale, in March 2016 following community concern that the site was subject to a development approval for subdivision into residential allotments.

“Once Willards Farm was saved, Council worked long and hard to negotiate the purchase of the neighbouring 61-hectares of Commonwealth land,” she said.

“The Commonwealth had indicated this land was tagged as surplus. As such, it also was in threat of being subdivided into residential allotments, with the Government suggesting it could accommodate 400 houses.

“Council managed to secure the purchase of the land in December 2019.

“The combined properties now form Birkdale Community Precinct.

“It is such a large property that a large number of uses and facilities can be accommodated without impacting on the precinct’s heritage values.

“Other uses will also bring attention and appreciation to the heritage-listed sites that it contains.”

Cr Williams said a vision document for the precinct was currently being prepared and would be presented to Council shortly.

“The document will include high level, aspirational concepts for Willards Farm and its surrounding land to reflect ideas as suggested by the community during Council’s seven-week community engagement program earlier this year,” she said

Some of the ideas put forward for Willards Farm by the community include ventures such as farmers’ market place, bush food gardens, a café or restaurant, paddock-to-plate dining experiences, and an agrifarm experience demonstrating traditional and contemporary farming methods.

Further community consultation will occur at the master planning stage, Cr Williams said.

Islands work funded under stimulus package


Macleay and Russell islands residents are getting a smoother run and a fun park refresh thanks to two works programs funded by a COVID-19 recovery stimulus package.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said road green-sealing work on the islands and a renewal of the Jackson Oval Park play space on Russell Island had been funded under the second phase of the Australian Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) program.

“This Australian Government stimulus funding is over and above Council’s own stimulus spending program,” Cr Williams said.

“The latest round of Redlands Coast-based projects approved under the second phase includes $621,500 for road green sealing on Macleay and Russell islands.

“This work involves using a two-coat bitumen seal to suppress and manage dust and prevent the environmental impact of gravel loss from unsealed roads on the islands.

“It will also improve stormwater management by reshaping roadside drains. Work is scheduled to continue to run through into November, weather permitting.”

Division 5 Councillor Mark Edwards said the second island project funded under the LRCI program was a $214,000 renovation of the Jackson Oval Park play node on Russell Island.

“The existing play equipment at Jackson Oval had reached the end of its usable life, so I am delighted to see the renewed play facilities for residents and visitors as well as the sporting groups that use the site,” he said.

“The park renewal and the green-sealing are part of more than $5 million being invested in Redlands Coast community infrastructure under the funding.”

The Australian Government’s LRCI program supports local councils to deliver priority projects while supporting jobs and the resilience of local economies to help communities bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Australian Government has committed $5.3 million to works in Redlands City under the LRCI Program Phase 2.

Celebration of all things Olympic at Live event


Redland City Mayor Karen Williams at Redlands Coast Olympics Live in Cleveland, Sunday 25 July.

Redlands Coast residents turned out to celebrate an Olympics double in Cleveland on Sunday and continue to watch the big screen at Bloomfield Street Park for the Olympics Live action.

Not only were they there to cheer on our Aussie team at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, including Redlands Coast sailor Mara Stransky, but also to celebrate Wednesday’s announcement that Brisbane and Redlands Coast will host the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams told the crowd at Olympics Live Presented by Westpac in Bloomfield Street Park that having the 2032 Games come to the south east was “beyond exciting”.

“Redlands Coast will be an event venue city. The Brisbane 2032 Olympics Canoe Slalom events will be held at our purpose-built Redland Whitewater Centre,” Cr Williams said.

“This will be a fantastic opportunity, not only for us to enjoy the spectacle and excitement of a Games event here in our city, but also to showcase our wonderful Redlands Coast to the world.”

Paralympian Daniel Fox, Olympian Andrew Trim and Wynnum Redlands Canoe Club president John Simpson were guest speakers at the Sunday morning forum emceed by Ranger Stacey and with a performance by the Cleveland Air Magic skippers.

Daniel Fox, who retired from swimming in June this year, inspired youngsters in the audience to get involved in sport.

“The Brisbane 2032 Olympics could be the moment that inspires kids to get involved in sport,” he said.

“If you’ve got a goal and love a sport, stick at it, keep going and give 110 per cent in training.”

Andrew Trim congratulated Redlands Coast on being announced as the host city for the whitewater centre for the 2032 Olympics.

“The facility will bring many events to Redlands Coast – world cups and world exposure,” he said. “And it will also see lots of children training there.”

John Simpson said the whitewater centre would be an incredible opportunity to bring children into the sport.

“Younger generations will have the opportunity to really get involved because the opportunities are there,” he said.

“Olympians are just normal people – you have to believe it, dare to dream it, and picture yourself there because someone is going to be there, why not you?”

Olympics Live Redlands Coast, run by Redland City Council, continues at Bloomfield Street Park, Cleveland, 10am to 4pm daily until Friday 30 July. All of the excitement and achievements from the Tokyo Olympics will be shown live on a large LED screen.

Live appearances added to Olympics Live


Paralympian Daniel Fox and Olympian Andrew Trim will be guest speakers at a one-off forum being held during the Redlands Coast Olympics Live event.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams, who will also address this Sunday’s morning forum in central Cleveland, said the sportsmen – both long-time local residents – will join Wynnum-Redlands Canoe Club president John Simpson on a panel to discuss the importance of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

“With Brisbane being named host of the 2032 Olympics and Paralympic Games and with the Tokyo Olympics under way, what an exciting time to hear some real-life stories from these athletes,” Cr Williams said.

“Redlands Coast will be an event venue city for the Canoe Slalom events at the Brisbane 2032 Games, so it will be great to hear about the purpose-built Olympic-standard Redland Whitewater Centre that will be home to this exciting Olympic sport.”

Ranger Stacey will emcee the event which starts at 9.30am on Sunday 25 July and runs until 10am when that day’s Olympics Live Presented by Westpac broadcast starts.

Daniel Fox is a para-swimmer who competed in the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, and the 2014 and 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Andrew Trim is a past World Champion in kayaking having competed in three Olympic Games and winning medals in two, including a Silver at the last home Olympics in Sydney.

Olympics Live Redlands Coast at Bloomfield Street Park, Cleveland, will operate from 10am to 4pm, Saturday 24 July to Friday 30 July, with Sunday’s one-off forum coinciding with the popular Cleveland Markets.

The seven days of big screen viewing and Sunday activities are being run by Redland City Council.

Games come to Redlands Coast in 2032


The Olympics are coming to Redlands Coast in 2032.

With Brisbane being named as host city for the Games of the XXXV Olympiad, Redland City Mayor Karen Williams confirmed Redlands Coast would be an event venue city for the Canoe Slalom events at the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

“This is a fantastic opportunity, not only for locals to enjoy the spectacle and excitement of a Games event right in our city’s backyard, but also to showcase our wonderful Redlands Coast to the world,” Cr Williams said.

“A purpose-built Olympic-standard Redland Whitewater Centre to host the canoe slalom events is part of the integrated Redlands Coast Adventure Sports Precinct for which Birkdale Community Precinct on Old Cleveland Road East, Birkdale, is the preferred site.”

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced in Tokyo tonight that Brisbane had been selected to host the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Cr Williams said what was even more exciting about the whitewater venue is that it would be a legacy facility for generations to come.

“There is ample land for such a facility to be accompanied by other uses without having to impact the site’s important environmental and cultural values. Its overall legacy opportunities are compelling,” she said.

“Subject to vision development and master planning, the location for the Redland Whitewater Centre within the precinct is likely to be the area proximate to the vacant cleared land to the precinct’s northern corner, given the known values of the land and the opportunities it presents.

“Council will soon be able to share with the community the Vision for the Birkdale Community Precinct, which will capture and integrate the aspirations and ideas of the community as expressed through the recent community engagement.

“It is a large precinct that has space for many exciting projects that would enhance lifestyle and benefit communities and economies. The Redland Whitewater Centre, which has a small footprint and will be on already cleared land, would be just one of several community ventures and activities that the 62-hectare site could accommodate.”

Cr Williams said similar Olympic facilities elsewhere had demonstrated substantial local community and economic benefits, including during construction and for ongoing operation.

“It will bring forward important transport infrastructure, in particular, the much-needed duplication of the Cleveland railway line and the completion of the Eastern Busway to Capalaba,” Cr Williams said.

“The Redlands Coast Adventure Sports Precinct is identified as a catalyst project in Our Redlands – A Corporate Plan to 2026 and Beyond.

“It is anticipated that about 150 jobs could be sustained through the building and delivery of the adventure sports precinct, with an annual contribution of $52 million to the local economy.

“It also has significant opportunities to be used as a swift-water rescue training facility for emergency services.”

Australian Olympic Team paddler Jessica Fox who will compete in the Canoe Slalom events in Tokyo said the 2032 Olympics decision was an “amazing opportunity”.

“We all know the impact the Sydney Olympics had on all of us, on sport in Australia, the general public, so to see it come home would be amazing.  It’s something the kids, watching the Olympics today, could look forward to in a few years’ time,” the three-time Olympian said from the athletes’ village in Tokyo.

“It’s incredible to think of a new whitewater venue in Redlands Coast. It would be amazing for the sport, for the community, tourism and for the general public wanting to try something new.

“We’ve seen the impact Penrith (Whitewater Stadium in NSW) has had on us and our sport and to have another world class venue in Australia would be incredible.

“We see this venue here (in Tokyo) and it would just be amazing to have that back home in Redlands Coast.”

Fellow Australian team member at the Tokyo Olympics, Russell Island-raised sailor Mara Stransky said Brisbane’s selection for 2032 was “fantastic for Australian sport in so many ways”.

“It’s the 8-year-old of today who we can be really proud of when the Olympics come here,” she said.

Stransky, 22, who will compete in the Laser Radial class in Tokyo, said an Olympics whitewater centre in Redlands Coast would be a great asset for the city.

Cr Williams said Redlands Coast residents had the chance to cheer on the Australian Olympic team in Tokyo during the Olympics Live free event to be held in Cleveland from this Saturday (24 July).

“There will be a large LED screen set up in Bloomfield Street Park broadcasting all of the excitement and achievements from the Tokyo Olympics live,” she said.

Olympics Live Presented by Westpac Redlands Coast at Bloomfield Street Park, Cleveland, will operate from 10am to 4pm, Saturday 24 July to Friday 30 July.

Cr Williams said the Council of Mayors (SEQ), which has been instrumental in the Brisbane 2032 proposal, had good reason to celebrate their success.

“The Games are predicted to deliver some $8.1 billion in economic and social benefits for Queensland, and $17.6 billion nationally,” Cr Williams said.

What exactly is the event that Redlands Coast will host in 2032?

The sport of canoe slalom, in which competitors in canoes and kayaks navigate a series of whitewater rapid challenges, was modelled from ski slalom and began in Switzerland in 1932. In its early days, it was first performed on flat water but later switched to whitewater rapids. In canoe slalom the boats are small, light and agile, allowing for greater manoeuvrability through rapids.

Canoe slalom made its debut at the 1972 Munich Games. Slalom racing was not competed again in the Olympic Games until the 1992 Barcelona Games. Canoe slalom racers compete in four events, three for men and one for women, over the same course.

Olympics Live comes to Redlands Coast


Redlands Coast will be able to cheer on the Australian Olympic team in Tokyo during the Olympics Live free event to be held in Cleveland from 24 July.

Mayor Karen Williams said the Olympics Live Presented by Westpac event was a great opportunity for the city to gather and support our Olympians.

“There will be a large LED screen set up in Bloomfield Street Park broadcasting all of the excitement and achievements from the Tokyo Olympics live,” Cr Williams said.

“Due to the global pandemic, spectators will not be in attendance at the Tokyo Games, so it will be more important than ever for our athletes to know Australians are cheering them on at home.”

Olympics Live Redlands Coast at Bloomfield Street Park, Cleveland, will operate from 10am to 4pm, Saturday 24 July to Friday 30 July. Spectator seating will be available.

The result of the International Olympic Committee’s vote on the host for the 2032 Olympic Games will be announced on Wednesday 21 July, three days ahead of Olympics Live at Redlands Coast.

The IOC’s vote has the potential to be transformational for Queensland and the Olympic and Paralympic games.

Redlands Coast will be home to an Olympic venue for the 2032 Olympic Canoe Slalom events should Brisbane be named as host.

Matt Carroll AM, CEO of the Australian Olympic Committee, said Olympics Live at Redlands Coast presented a great opportunity to re-unite through sport.

“We’re really excited to see Redlands Coast embracing Olympics Live, and I thank Cr Williams for supporting the ongoing development of sport within their community,” Mr Carroll said.

“Olympics Live will present an opportunity to re-connect as a community and embrace the Olympic spirit.”

Olympics Live Redlands Coast will be part of a large network of live sites across the country being set-up next week.
